Is Harley-Davidson under- or over-valued?

Valuing Harley-Davidson stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Harley-Davidson's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Harley-Davidson's P/E ratio

Harley-Davidson's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 68x. In other words, Harley-Davidson shares trade at around 68x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Harley-Davidson's PEG ratio

Harley-Davidson's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.2026. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Harley-Davidson's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Harley-Davidson's EBITDA

Harley-Davidson's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $925.5 million.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Harley-Davidson's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Harley-Davidson's environmental, social and governance track record

Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Harley-Davidson.

When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

Harley-Davidson's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 24.32

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Harley-Davidson's overall score of 24.32 (as at 01/01/2019) is excellent – landing it in it in the 17th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Harley-Davidson is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Harley-Davidson's environmental score

Environmental score: 9.85/100

Harley-Davidson's environmental score of 9.85 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Harley-Davidson is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Harley-Davidson's social score

Social score: 15.21/100

Harley-Davidson's social score of 15.21 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Harley-Davidson is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Harley-Davidson's governance score

Governance score: 12.26/100

Harley-Davidson's governance score puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Harley-Davidson is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Harley-Davidson's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Harley-Davidson scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Harley-Davidson has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Harley-Davidson share dividends

16%

Dividend payout ratio: 15.67% of net profits

Recently Harley-Davidson has paid out, on average, around 15.67% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.57% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Harley-Davidson shareholders could enjoy a 1.57% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Harley-Davidson's case, that would currently equate to about $0.47 per share.

While Harley-Davidson's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Harley-Davidson is investing more in its future growth.

Harley-Davidson's most recent dividend payout was on 23 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 7 December 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Harley-Davidson's shares ever split?

Harley-Davidson's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 10 April 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Harley-Davidson shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Harley-Davidson shares which in turn could have impacted Harley-Davidson's share price.

Harley-Davidson share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Harley-Davidson's shares have ranged in value from as little as $30.7237 up to $51.4807. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HOG.US volatility(beta: 1.47)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Harley-Davidson's is 1.4719. This would suggest that Harley-Davidson's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
